This degree prepares high end professionals to lead North Carolina and the nation both in the development of new technology used to understand and manage spatial phenomena (economic development, disease, emergency planning and response, environmental resources, etc.) and in the management and application of this technology in corporate and service organizations. The degree is centered on NC State’s strengths in management of technology, computer engineering, and statistical analytics and builds on our successful Graduate Certificate in GIS and our Master’s of Natural Resources/Spatial Information Systems Option degree. The program focuses on advanced skill development in computational modeling and management decision support, as opposed to geography, and will address the growing need for GIS developers, managers, and analysts.
